The “Happy Festival” art performances were staged in the center on the same day.
The Peking Opera “Long Feng Cheng Xiang” tells the story of the Wu Kingdom ruler Sun Quan conspired with his adviser Zhou Yu to marry his sister Sun Shangxiang to the Shu Kingdom ruler Liu Bei after Liu Bei occupied Jingzhou during the Three Kingdoms period (220-280) in ancient China. Sun Quan planned to use the marriage as a bait to take Liu Bei hostage in exchange for Jingzhou.
